Mormon Gulch Campground was a nice campground 20 years ago, but today there is almost nothing. If you weren't looking for the turn for the campground you would drive right by as the sign is no longer hanging. A short distance after crossing the cattle guard the dirt road turns in to a paved loop for the campground, then your heart drops. You reach the first campsites and see overgrown parking pads, a dismantled concrete picnic table and a metal fire ring. Beyond the first sites it remains the same, hard to find parking pads, a few still have fire rings at the sites if you can find them, no picnic tables and the two outhouses have been removed as has the pump that use to provide water. The campground area is devoid of trees, the area is littered with stumps. The tree were removed due to the massive pine beetle kill off. The next campground down the road“Lady Smith” has suffered the same fate. You will have to travel to White house campground if you want a functional campground with water, fault toilets and picnic tables with fire rings.
